It seems the Mazda 5 is the next model to receive the SkyActiv treatment in Malaysia – Mazda 3S & Tribos Application Centre’s Facebook page has yielded indicative pricing and features for the updated MPV.

An OTR with insurance price of RM157,264 is listed – that’s about RM4k more than the non-SkyActiv Mazda 5, which was launched in December 2010.

The post adds that deliveries are set to happen between late February and early March, and that Aluminium, Jet Black, Crystal Pearl White and Metallic Grey body colours will be available.

Like the similarly-engined 3, 6 and CX-5, the Mazda 5 SkyActiv 2.0 should see a 2.0 litre SkyActiv engine and six-speed SkyActiv auto combo replace the previous 2.0 litre MZR unit and five-speed Activematic auto.
